MissionThe primary mission of the IRB is to protect the rights, welfare and privacy of all individuals participating in biomedical, social, and behavioral research activities, including field or off-site research, as conducted by AUB faculty, staff and students.
The IRB conducts reviews of proposed research studies employing an assessment process that determines that the methodology used is consistent with sound research design and that the risk to participants/subjects is minimized. The IRB also provides interpretive assistance and support to the research community.
